[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Available for iPhone, iPad, and iTouch, 'How I Die' is a social entertainment app released by Double Coconut, an independent development studio focused on apps that inspire creativity and self-expression. Free to download for an introductory period, 'How I Die' purports to harness the latest advances in psychic paranormal research and micro-photo scanning technology to analyze one's face and determine when and how a person will pass. The app also shows users an image of what a person may look like in their very last moment.
A user can use the camera or their photo gallery to input a facial image. The image is then micro-scanned. The final ghastly image can be shared easily on Facebook, Twitter, Email, or other social networks.
"There are already apps to show me what I'll look like old, fat, or bald," says Bradley Hall, a fan of the app. "This definitely takes it to the next level."
Full of dark humor, 'How I Die' also offers an Upgrade pack, purchasable within the app, to unlock more off-beat and off-color ways to die, as well as more morbid imagery such as maggots, open-flesh wounds, and tire tracks.
The app is for entertainment value only, of course, and is not recommended for the squeamish.
